President Biden issued an exec. order on Jan 20, 2021 directing all federal agencies to include sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression in protections against discrimination based on sex. HUD announced its implementation of the order on Feb 11 with a memo. The Fair Housing Act will now prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. FHEO will now investigate all sex discrimination complaints, including those based on sexual orientation or gender identity, if they meet jurisdictional requirements. If there's reasonable cause, FHEO will refer the case to HUD's Office of General Counsel for a determination of cause.

In this informative webinar we'll assess top practices. Understanding this is crucial for landlords to avoid fair housing violations.
